Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandfather's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated, even the people who mistreat you. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. That Team Up North sucks. The SEC sucks. Go Bucks!


  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

Every time we lose I have a pit in my stomach the next day. The longer it lasts the worse the loss. Safe to say I was quite ill during 2011. Losses suck.

But if I had a choice a 1-TD loss in the playoff semifinal would be the easiest to swallow. We at least get to the Final 4 but are spared the pain of losing a national title by the same score which would SUCK worse.

If we lose to OU this year so be it, as long as we fight them hard and don't back down.

This is NOT the year I want to see us lose to someone like Insane Jimmy, Penn State, Nebraska, or Wisconsin.

And yeah a loss to Indiana would piss me off something awful.

JT and the offense have to return to its 2014 swagger for him to be in the same conversation. The WRs have to be highly productive and Weber has to catch fire. If that happens yes, I see JT giving Watson a run for his money. Watson is a special QB no doubts there.

If 2002 was a roller-coaster season 2012 was even more so. I left us for dead after Brax went down in the Purdue game. But that's when the Legend of Kenny G was born. The Sparty game was fun to watch. The Indiana game was not fun to watch. But the Nebraska, PSU, Wisky, and TTUN games were incredibly fun to watch.

I also do not blame Gene Smith for anything in regards to our bowl ban that year. The NCAA has proven what a chickenshit outfit it is so they were going to screw us no matter what Gene did. He brought us Urban. That's good enough for me.

Coincidentally, it was Braxton's injury in the 2012 Purdue game that led me to join 11W. From TV it looked as if Brax had been hurt badly and I was desperate for news so I texted my friends to ask if they had heard any news. My good friend from college texted me the link to 11W and I read everything I could on here. I was relieved to immediately read Brax was just stunned. I joined 11W that afternoon.

It's going to be a LONG year if the defense reverts back to 2012-13 levels. Let's keep our fingers crossed our recruiting has been up to snuff.

Hubbard isn't going to have 20 sacks and 20+ TFLs but he's going to be solid. No offensive line can block both Hubbard, Lewis AND Raekwon. Someone will get through. I can easily see us having 3-4 players with 8-10 sacks and 10-15 TFLs each.

Barkley will be great if PSU can throw the ball. Otherwise defenses will just key on him.

I think it's clearly evident Sparty will be tough as nails as long as Dino is there.

Clement is in the same boat with Barkley. If Wisky cant throw the ball defenses will just key on him.

Iowa's 2015 season was a mirage. Back to 8-4/7-5 for them this fall.

The smart player at the 5 star level would go to a Alabama, Auburn, or someplace that the Football program rules the school.

I'm sorry, this is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen posted on the internet. Ever. For your sake I hope it is a bad attempt at sarcasm/satire. Otherwise the commentariat is going to:

Because Ted Ginn Jr. has world-class Olympic speed (sub 10.2 sec 100m, sub 21.0 sec 200m). Anyone that fast you put on offense or at least kick return, especially when you don't have anyone else on offense with near that speed.

RIP Mr. Wilder. You represent a good part of my childhood. Wily Wonka was the first movie I ever saw in the theatre when I was 8. The local cinema played it on a Saturday afternoon on one of those $2 days and my grandparents took me. It's sad most people these days remember him for internet memes but before that he was Mr. Wonka and the Waco Kid to me.

I remember reading Bert said he felt he "out-punted the coverage" when meeting his wife. I still agree with that.

I've told several of my friends on Facebook who have added "Friends" who are obviously fake profiles that those are catfishers, spammers, scammers, or spies. No drop-dead impossibly gorgeous woman is going to friend you on FB randomly (Not my ugly-assed friends anyway). How dumb do you have to be?
